Originally the graphic amplifier was able to be detected. However, I wasn't able to use the loopback mode. So I decided to reinstall the computer to see if it would solve the problem. Yet, it created another problem. Now the amplifier cannot be detected and the emblem does not light up anymore.
Furthermore, I can hot swap the internal gpu and external gpu without rebooting the computer.
After all, I was wondering if there is any fix for the amplifier to work properly?

Make sure you follow the steps on this video to make sure the amplifier was setup in a proper way.
Also reinstall the Command Center and finally, make sure the BIOS is up up to date.

Same here, i tried everything from restarting/reinstalling but still doenst work and following the video one by one 😞 Anyone knows how to fix this? i have a 17 r5 with 1070 Dgpu and MSI Aero GTX 1070 ti in my Alienware graphics dock.
So the GPU works and it’s not being detected.
Then Have you clicked the Graphics amp button on the keyboard with the FN Key + F1?
